The appellation covers around 640 hectares, straddling two villages between Burgundy and the Rhône. Every sip of Moulin-à-Vent tells a story, a tradition handed down from generation to generation.

Moulin à Vent, the emblem of Beaujolais, was recently awarded the prestigious title of best Gamay in the world. This distinction, awarded at the Concours Mondial du Gamay, celebrates its centenary and its exceptional quality.


This year, the festivities are grandiose. The gala dinner held in the enchanting setting of the vineyard offers a unique opportunity to taste the finest cuvées and delve into the rich and captivating history of this iconic wine region.


The prestigious gala on 17 April at Hameau Duboeuf will be this year's flagship event to celebrate the centenary of Moulin-à-Vent. In partnership with the Rendez-vous Beaujolais website, the evening promises to be a sumptuous tribute to the region's history and winemaking excellence. Sumptuous wines will accompany a gourmet dinner in an elegant and festive atmosphere.
